Forestry Environmental issues during the operational phase of various types of forestry primarily include the following:

  • Wastewater
  • Air emissions
  • Solid waste and by-products
  • Environmental impact throughout the supply chain

The forestry sector has numerous opportunities for cost-savings and efficiency throughout the production process. An analysis of what areas of the operations could be improved to generate savings and higher efficiency can be determined by exploring the following:

  • Increase water recycling and reuse and reduce water consumption
  • Increase cogeneration capacity
  • Increase energy from renewable sources
  • Improve waste heat recovery, steam efficiency or combustion efficiency
  • Reuse large quantities of organic by-products (e.g ) for energy
  • Carbon credits sales
  • Transportation – increase use of efficient vehicles such as hybrids or electric
  • Greening of supply chain by addressing resource efficiencies of suppliers
